WBYJ was developed from a simple wish of Mr. Frank Griffith, who had a small idea and desire to present Jesus to the Burlington community. That lit up the imagination of the members of the Haw River Seventh-day Adventist Church, grew into a flame and before you know it WBYJ 97.9 was born during Christmas of 2004. Since then we have been the source of continuous gospel music for our listeners.
Our call letters represent our mission and passion...We Bring You Jesus. We are a low-powered, non-profit 501c(3), 24/7 FM Gospel station. You can find us on the radio at 97.9 FM within the Burlington listening area.
WBYJ Burlington Christian Radio was created with one goal in mind: to bring gospel music and Christ-centered content to the good people of the Burlington community.
The purpose and mission of WBYJ as a non-profit, listener and sponsor supported radio ministry is to serve the local community through uplifting gospel music and sharing of Bible-based, Christ focused programming. It is our desire to be a voice of truth, peace, and love pointing to the joy and healing that can be found through knowledge of and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ in a last day setting. Our goal is to be involved in the community, in music, events, and ministry, emphasizing our common biblical Christian heritage and presenting distinctive truths as found in the Scriptures to encourage and strengthen faith, allowing our listeners to experience God’s love in an authentic and personal way.
